"Nothing much to say, all good. MOT done and Air-Con re gassed as requested."
"Email to original appointment went astray but phoned and rearranged to suit me. Helpful at each stage and checked before work undertaken. Informed when car was ready. Courtesy car provided without difficulty. Thank you."
"Service with a smile."
"Found a solution to an issue a different garage couldn’t find- very happy with it!!!"
"Very good service and value for money"
Excellent fast service!!
"I booked service for y driving school car online ideally for the same day which wasn't available. They booked me in the next day 1st thing so I didn't need to re-arrange my diary, this only effected one student not the whole morning or day. This I found fantastic and helpful, service completed right on the time they quoted. I will definatly use them again next time."
"Friendly staff, no mucking about, just good value. Switched from a dealership to Independent for my and my wife's car - much cheaper servicing."
Nice and straightforward
"No-fuss service and MOT - the frontline staff was friendly, and they knew what was going on without having to shuffle through the papers (I was impressed!)."
Customer service lacking
"The work was fine, however it was booked in for 8am, & was still in the mot station at 4.30pm. I have never had a car take so long for a service & mot, if it's booked in the morning the work should be carried out in the morning."
"Great service from start to finish."
"This was my first visit. The drop off was easy, the price better than main dealer and the service very friendly and professional. I booked for an MOT and full service but was informed that no service was actually due despite the dash warning, so they only did and only charged for what was necessary. Also the car came back clean and valeted which was a lovely touch. I would recommend Independent and will use them again."
When you’re trying to find the right garage in Eastleigh for your car’s service, it’s good to be able to see all your options quickly and easily. BookMyGarage will show you 16 trusted garages in and around Eastleigh for you to choose from based on proximity, opening hours, price, service and more.
How do you choose a garage for your service?
What is the first thing you do when it’s time to choose a garage for your annual service? Do you just pick up the phone to the garage you’ve been using since you first drove a car - even if it’s miles out of Eastleigh - because that’s what you’ve always done? Do you ask friends for their recommendations? Or do you compare prices, speed and quality of service, and feedback for all the garages in and around Eastleigh? While this might seem the most systematic approach, it is also the most time-intensive. But BookMyGarage lets you do just that and book in your service with your chosen garage online at the same time.
When should you get your car serviced?
Do you know how often you should get your car serviced and what type of service you need? There is no hard and fast rule - it depends on the model of car you have and its age. You should find this information in your car owner’s manual. If you’re not sure, enter your mileage on BookMyGarage and we’ll help you decide. As a general recommendation, you should be taking your car for a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles). If you’re regularly travelling far beyond Eastleigh for work or to visit relatives, or you have a car with known issues, it’s worth getting an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
What are common repairs your car may need?
The cambelt (or timing belt) is a very important component that regulates the operation of your car engine. If it breaks, it can cause expensive damage, so when it comes to the cambelt prevention is better than cure. This crucial part of your engine will have an inbuilt lifespan. Varying from make to make, some manufacturers suggest replacement at 40,000 miles, others are said to last as long as 110,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for your specific car. Some tell-tale symptoms that your cambelt might be wearing out include erratic engine behaviour at around 2000 - 4000 RPMs, or your exhaust suddenly starting to expel more smoke than usual. This is an indicator that your engine is struggling and under duress - time to click on BookMyGarage and find a great Eastleigh garage at the right price.
What do you need from your garage?
We all have different needs, and choosing a garage is no different. For some of us, it’s the quality of the overall service which matters most; not just the work that’s done under the bonnet, but the human interaction that comes with it. BookMyGarage allows you to compare Eastleigh garages on everything from their waiting room refreshments or whether having your toddler in tow is going to be a problem, to how clearly the staff can explain the work your car requires.
